There are none.
I was going to leave the post there, because that is pretty much self explanatory! But I have decided that it would be best for me to go into more depth on what I mean (hahah!).
Right, so, I’m at that horrible time in my life where I’ve just graduated from University and I’m doing a temporary job trying to figure out what an earth I want to do with my life. Unfortunately there isn’t a book, guide or instruction manual on how to transition from a Uni Gal to an Adult (Gal). I have so many people around me who are either travelling, in full time employment, studying for their Masters and I’m here still trying to figure out whether I’m gonna be a vegetarian for January or not loooooool.
It can be quite disheartening, and I feel as though I’ve completely slowed down and I’m doing nothing with myself. I’m so confused about who I am, my position in this world, what I want to make of myself and the type of life I want to live. Everyday I wake up wanting to take my life in a different direction. I’ll wake up on Monday like ‘Yeah I’m going to pursue my acting career’, then by Wednesday It’s ‘No i’m gonna start a career in PR’ and so on and so on. I literally go through this battle every week! If anyone can relate to anything I’ve said so far – YOU ARE NOT ALONE MY FRIEND.
Okay I’ve sort of lost my train of thought and where i’m going with this post- oops!
But my point here is that there aren’t any lessons on adulting, which means there isn’t a right or wrong way in doing it. There is just your way! There isn’t a timeline you need to follow, or certain goals you should have reached by a certain age. There is just you in this big world. So take your time, be patient, explore all avenues, test and trial new things. Don’t feel rushed and always follow your heart. A few months ago when I was at the theatre I was speaking to a man who was in his early 70s. He asked em what I wanted to do and I replied that I didn’t know. His response was ‘oh well that’s okay I’m 70(forgot the number) and I still don’t know what I want to do with my life’. And since then I just thought wow. I really am not alone. And it’s completely normal to feel a little lost and not have my life together (yet).
So are there lessons to adulting? No, and is that okay? Yes!
Do not underestimate any of your qualities, your destiny will find you, and one day you will wake up with your life exactly how it should be. Be patient young Qweens (and Kings). I’m not too sure if this post made much sense, but I just felt like I needed to get it out of my system. I don’t know what i’m doing with my life and I am so okay with that. I’m a young 22 year old. Life has just begun.
Over and Out xo
